Villa Augustus

To wake up surrounded by nature, spend a night at Villa Augustus, a former water tower immersed in decorative gardens. The market-style kitchen serves seasonal garden-to-table dishes from the hotel’s own vegetable garden. Choose a room in the tower itself, a room in the former boiler house that opens directly into the garden, or a floating room on the Wantij river.

Hotel de Watertoren

Another of Dordrecht’s water towers has been transformed into the equally charming Hotel de Watertoren. Each of the five rooms are housed within the hexagonal tower, and decorated in a minimal style with luxury bedding. The hotel is located on the outskirts of the city, near the Biesbosch National Park, offering beautiful walking and cycle routes, polder landscapes and public transport connections for exploring Dordrecht and Rotterdam.

B&B In de Prinsenstraat

Travel back in time by spending a night in a grand home that is recognized as a national monument. B&B In de Prinsenstraat is an 18th-century home that has been carefully preserved by generations. The two bedrooms offer the perfect combination of historic architecture and modern comfort, and each provide a view of the city or the harbor. Breakfast is served in the original kitchen where time has essentially stood still, so you can begin your day immersed in history.

B&B Appelsteiger

B&B Appelsteiger is perched on the Voorstraathaven-Wijnhaven harbor, with two bedrooms overlooking the waterways and bridges. The bedrooms are bright and tastefully furnished with box-spring beds and modern bathrooms. Enjoy breakfast in the cozy kitchen or in your room on request.

B&B Heer en Meester

Housed next to the Grote Kerk in a building that dates back to 1613, B&B Heer en Meester is a cozy and atmospheric location for exploring Dordrecht. The three spacious, light-filled bedrooms make guests feel right at home. The B&B is walking distance to many museums and attractions, and boat trips depart from the canal directly outside the door.

Stayokay Dordrecht De Biesbosch

Stayokay Dordrecht De Biesbosch is on the leafy surrounds of the Biesbosch National Park. The Wikkelhouse is one of the special accommodation options, which is a cabin made from recycled cardboard. Guests wanting even more of a secluded escape can opt to stay in the Ecolodge, which floats out in the polder of the national park. A canoe and bicycles are provided for exploring the tranquil environment.
